Although, this has yet to occur anywhere in the United States on a statewide level, it is not without precedence. Several cities, including San Francisco, Los Angeles and Seattle, have already adopted the $15 minimum per hour wage for employees. Here in New York, similar legislation is being discussed in Albany.
